*** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** Since too many people are still warming the globe, we'll do a cool coastal ride with an earlier, 9:00, start. Start/finish in Felton. First off is the tough climb on shady Alba. Then it's over the hills and through the woods to more shade by the stream on Smith Grade, one of my favorite areas. Optional is Swanton. You can skip it and lunch at the Davenport Bakery to do a 35 mile ride that beats the sun on the long return up Bonny Doon. Driving directions: from Los Gatos take Hwy 17 south; exit at Mt. Herman Rd in Scotts Valley; right on Mt. Herman Rd towards Felton; just before Graham Hill Rd, left into the Safeway shopping center; park near Graham Hill, furthest away from Safeway. 06-08-2015 09:00:00 06-08-2015 10:00:00 6 ACTC: Our Favorite Kids 15-54 mi, 6 M , 2100-6200 ft: *** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** Since too many people are still warming the globe, we'll do a cool coastal ride with an earlier, 9:00, start.

Santa Cruz
Don't let the summer go by without a "cruz" on the Santa Cruz waterfront, from the Long's Marine Lab to New Brighton Beach. We'll be "cruzin'" past the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, through Capitola, and on some of the beautiful San Lorenzo River trails. We'll stop for coffee at the Pergolosi, a classic Victorian (with garden) downtown Santa Cruz before a stop at our Santa Cruz bungalow for a post-ride social. We start on Delaware Ave. directly behind Natural Bridges State Park where parking is plentiful and free. 24-08-2015 10:00:00 24-08-2015 11:00:00 6 ACTC: Sea Breezin' 24 mi, 2 LM : Don't let the summer go by without a "cruz" on the Santa Cruz waterfront, from the Long's Marine Lab to New Brighton Beach.

Meet at Mountain Mike's Pizza at the Argonaut Center on Sunnyvale-Saratoga Road near Cox and Pierce. After a brief warm up through the mazes, we will tackle the goats in the area, finishing before dark. This will be a strenuous training ride while climbing difficult goats to get ready for the big events of the season. We also have a treat this year as my birthday falls on a ride night (8/24 when I turn 61!) Ride rolls at 6:00 PM sharp. Please contact me as we are having a group leave 30 minutes earlier this summer at an M pace. Wet Pavement cancels.

The plan is for Mellow LM riders only. Expected to ride together at the pace of the slowest rider. If there is to be a Quick Spinner (QS) option, it will be impromptu. QS may do very challenging hills at a quicker M to MB pace. Route sheets provided on-line, and a few on the ride. Meet at Summit Bikes, Main Street in Los Gatos. Rain or intense heat cancels. Burritos after. Be there ready to roll by six. Sometimes another cyclist will lead the Quick Spinners option.
